Had a question on twitter today from musician Andrew Boyd as to what I thought were some of the great cover songs ever recorded. While I'm still working on that list, a few that came to mind were the Robert Plant-Alison Krauss version of "Black Dog", Heart wailing on "Rock & Roll" and basically any song that Joe Cocker has covered.
So I thought today's lick should be a classic cover. Roy Buchanan was the son of a sharecropper and he could play the blues like nobody's business. Mostly using a 1953 Fender Telecaster, Roy could make you see its soul fly out. A true guitar picker in every sense of the word, today's tasty treat is a cover of the classic Booker T and the MGs "Green Onions."
Gonna make you cry.
